Danny's Story


Screen Asia

Every year thousands of North Koreans make the dangerous journey across the border to escape oppression and poverty. In March 2005, Danny was one of them. Danny crossed into China and escaped a life of indoctrination, routine public executions, and starvation. As Danny traveled, he saw a world he never knew existed. A world where movement was not monitored by the government, information was readily available, and most importantly at the time, there was enough food to fill his empty belly.

Please join us for a special screening of Danny from North Korea. The screening will be followed by a discussion featuring Danny himself and Hannah Song, President and CEO of Liberty in North Korea (LINK).



Reception: 6:30 pm
Film and Discussion: 7:00 pm
